What song do you like to hum?
Jacob: "Bear" by The Antlers.
Michael: Probably "Where'd the Boogy-man Go?" by Frantic Lampshade.
What is your favorite song lyric, and from what song?
J: "It's Christmas time, and the needles on the tree / A skinny Santa is bringing something to me / His voice is overwhelming, but his speech is slurred / And I only understand every other word" from "King's Crossing" by Elliott Smith.
M: "Dance party till you puke and dance until you break the floor" from "In Place Unknown" by Quintron.
Who inspires you? If you could dedicate an album title to him/her, what would the title be?
J: Sting. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that.
M: Kobe "The Black Mamba" Bryant is an inspiration to me, and everyone else for that matter. If I were to dedicate an album to him, I would title it "I Love My Wife."
Which song would you have liked to sing with Michael Jackson?
J: "Hood Mentality" by Ice Cube.
M: "If I Were a Boy" by Beyonce.
If you could meet any live musician or artist, who would you meet and why?
J: Apollo. Not because of his music but because he was a Greek god.
M: The late, great Jerry Garcia. The physical deformity he overcame to become one of the greatest guitarists known to man is truly inspirational to all.
Who is your favorite Disney channel-turned-pop star?
J: Neil Patrick Harris.
M: Obviously, Lizzy McGuire.
What would you wear to a Beatles concert?
J: Leopard-print jorts and an industrial strength lighter.
M: I would probably wear skinny jeans, an ironic tee-shirt, think-rimmed black glasses. I would then stand on the outskirts of the crowd, whining loudly about how John Lennon is a sellout.
Favorite song to sing on a road trip?
J: These days I'm tempted to say "My Friend" by Dr. Dog, but I think "Truckin'" by The Grateful Dead wins.
M: I strictly listen to instrument mixes on the road, otherwise I'd fall asleep.
If the Racer-X asked you to join their band, would you?
J: Only if I could rap over their music.
M: Only if they continued to perform at small venues while staying connected to their ever growing fan base. In short, only if they don't sell out.
What's the first concert you went to as a teenager with your friends?
J: Tokyo Police Club. Born Ruffians opened.
M: Half-Japanese. You probably haven't heard of them.
Would you date Hannah Montana or Selena Gomez?
M: Both, at once.
If you were to give a piece of music advice to Kelly Clarkson, what would the advice be?
J: I'd tell her to keep making bad pop songs and getting away with it.
M: Keep on keeping on.
If you could write a song about your Bowdoin College experience, what would you title it? Give a lyric from that song.
J: Title would be "Lax Bro Love." One lyric: "I'm going going, back back, to Crack, Crack."
M: I'm not sure it would have a title, but I know it would be an entirely instrumental piece.
Which musical instrument do you have wish never existed? Why?
J: Probably the oboe, everyone in middle school used to talk about how difficult it was.
M: The Guitar. It's so mainstream now.
